Dezi:  No Raena, me’s not callin’ our ‘pawrtment the Three Belles Ranch. Now c’mon, we’ve got lots of furiends that hopped on the Blessing  Train this week. Our train is growin’.  

 

The Blessing Train

 

 

Blessing Train with FriendsThere’s still purrlenty of track left fur you.

 

 

 

          I’s know sissy. It just warms mine’s heart to see everypawdy join in. Our dear furiends from Meezers Mews and Terrieristical Woofs, Pipo and Dalton, joined us. Ya’ know, their house was recently broken into and some horrible peep(s) stole their things. In spite of it all, they’re so Blest that nopawdy was hurt. We don’t know how they do it, but they never miss a birthday or gotchaday in the blogosphere. We are so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanky fanks fur joinin’ us. And, we’re keepin’ ya’ll in our purrayers. Now their computer was stolen, so we helped them make their boxcar. Rest assured that had awnty Ingrid, aka  Petcretary made it, it would be much more elaborately decorated.

They’re just the bestest Raena. Next up is our amazin’ Scottish furiends from Spike The Scottish Black Cat, Spike and awnty Christine. They are just the sweetest furiends with hearts of gold. Black Cats rock, and Spike is proof of how pawsum they can be. We look forward to many more years of furiendship with ya’ll. True furiends are to be cherished, and we feel so  Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur hoppin’ on.

          Oh sissy, I’s just luvs them. Next to hop on board is a dear furiend we met thru our articles at the Daily Mews, awnty Vonda. She has 15 kitties and counting that she cares fur. She’s not a blogger, but has 2 angel kitties on the old Catster, Sassy and Pepper. She sent green papers that helped mommy rescue me from that horrible cage in that stinky place I’s was born into. You’d be hard pressed to find a truer furiend. She’s always there with a kind word or purrayer. We’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanky fanks fur hoppin’ on.

She’s been so pawsum to all of us Raena. Our bestest Persian pal Valentine, from Noir Kitty Mews added another boxcar full of Blessings this week. He meowed ‘bout his family and how Blest he was to have his. And he’s so right, family is a furtastic Blessing. We count Val and his family as pawrt of ours too. Unner all that fur you’d find kindness a heart full of luv to share with all he meets. We’re so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur joinin’ us fur this amazin’ ride.

Up next is awnty Sandee from Comedy Plus. She says she doesn’t currently have any kitties or woofies. We meow, that’s okay. The Blessing Train is open to all who want to join. We link up with her each week fur Feline Fridays and offen find awnty Sandee links us up fur Aaaaaaaw Mondays. She’s kind and luvvin’ and we’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanks fur joinin’ us.

          They are all such a Blessing sissy. Last but certainly not least this week is awnty Ellen and the kitties of 15 and Meowing. Now some of ya’ already know this, but fur those who don’t, awnty Ellen is mine’s God awnty. You know, kind’a like a God mother. See, back when mommy saved me and befur she and sissy told the world, they told awnty Ellen. Awnty Ellen made me mine’s furst ever toys and nip mat to welcome me into the world. But it’s not just me, awnty Ellen does so many pawsum things fur all in the blogosphere. Any kitty who’s ever tried her Made With Luvs toys and/or mats know just how talented and generous she is. And, how much luvs she puts out. We’re so Blest to call you furiends. Fanky fanks joinin’ us. And, don’t furget, there’s still time to get Prancie’s Prayer fur the young’un’s in your life.

I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s could’ve never ‘magine how wonderful mine’s life was gonna be the day mommy saved me. I’s had never known luvs or had furiends. Now, I’s can’t ‘magine a life without ‘em. Fanky fank you all.

Fank you so much fur bein’ Blessings in ours.  We’re also repostin’ the gospel songs mommy recorded. Several of you couldn’t lissen to them in the previous format, so here they are from SoundCloud. You can hear all our songs here. We will be uploading more in the days to come.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          I’s gonna run link us with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. You wrap this up and let’s go play fur a bit. 

 

Just fur a bit Raena. We still need to get our Christmas cards out.

Chatting Cats: Nip Nugs And Vine

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. You are never gonna believe what happened yesfurday. White stuffs came fallin’ from the sky!!! Sure ‘nuff, little balls of hard white stuffs were everywhere. They were too small to be dippin’ dots, and mommy said they weren’t edible anyways. Did you see ‘em sissy? 

 

Dezi sits pretty in the wheelchair

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me saw ‘em. Fankfully, they didn’t stick ‘round or get any bigger. Those little balls weren’t snow. Not that we want snow, but ice is fur sure not somethin’ we want. It’s way too early fur that. Besides, did you hear mommy say we’re gonna have to move right after Christmas? 

 

Raena lays atop the cat tree looking down

 

 

 

Move? She was only kitten, right?  

 

Dezi sits pretty in wheelchair

 

 

 

 

          Nope Raena, that fur sure wasn’t the face of a joke. And any time mommy starts talkin’ ‘bout needin’ to talk to lawyers and file complaints, it ain’t no laffin’ matter. Anyways, guess that’s why mommy said we weren’t decoratin’ fur Christmas this year. And with the car on the fritz with a busted gasket, we’re purrobably not gonna be able to go out light seein’.  

 

Oh well sissy, that means more cuddle time with mommy. I’s so luvs cuddle time. 

 

Dezi plays with nip toy

 

 

 

          Me hopes so Raena, but you’ve never been ‘round durin’ a move. Trust me, it ain’t as fun as it sounds. It ain’t like packin’ an overnight bag and stayin’ in a hotel. It’s like wall the wall boxes and stuffs everywhere. Won’t be no slidin’ down the hall on piddle pads fur you.  

 

Raena plays with kitty nug

 

 

 

Really sissy? Fur how long? Where are we goin’?   

 

          Who knows Raena, mommy’s lived in her car more than a couple of times in her life. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Anyways, It’s Christmas time and time to think ‘bout good things and fun. We’re gonna be postin’ our final and all inclusive Gift Guide Furiday. Me can’t hardly wait.

 

Raena plays with Kitty NugI’s so glad you don’t like this toy sissy.

 

 

 

 

Me neither sissy. I’s think we’ve picked out some really pawsum stuffs.  We even sourced some great silvervine fur all those kitties with a more discernin’ palette. Sorry you didn’t really like the kitty nug that was pawrt of your birthday purresent. But I’s was glad you liked some of the things in the Pawrty Pack.  

 

Dezi licks lips tongue out

 

 

 

          Fanks Raena. Me saw you enjoyin’ the nug, so you can have it. Mommy had thought we were gettin’ at least a couple of ‘em based on the description. Maybe we only got the one cuz we bought it with a steep discount. Anyways, just give me some of that silvervine and valerian root and me can be one happy kitty girl. 

 

Raena guards the kitty nug

 

 

 

Valerian root? I’s never tried that sissy. Is it good? 

 

Dezi peeks around the corner

 

 

 

 

          Well Raena, ifin you’re nice to me today, I’s might ask mommy to share some with ya’. 

 

Raena covers her eyes while playingAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanky fanks sissy.

 

 

 

 

That’s really nice of ya’ sissy, fanky fanks. 

 

Dezi stands on cat tree looking back at Raena on upper ledgeDon’t even think ’bout it Raena…

 

 

 

          Yeah, sure Raena. Just no jumpin’ on me. And get back, me doesn’t need any hugs right now. 

 

But I’s luvs you sissy. 

 

Dezi sits on cat tree looking back at Raena on the ledge

 

 

 

          Yeah yeah, me luvs you too Raena. Now seriously, go away.

 

  

Okay sissy. Wanna play?   

 

Till the next time………………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Chatting Cats: Happy Thanksgiving Slow Blinks

Hey everypawdy, are ya’ there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready fur Fanky Fanksgivin’? I’s sure is. (Dezi walks up to Raena and nose bumps her) Hey sissy, are you ready fur tomorrow? You know we’re gettin’ a special treat cuz not only is it Fanky Fanksgivin’ but it’s also your gotchaday. By the way, do you know why mommy keeps snatchin’ me up and cryin’? She gets all mushy and soaks mine’s furs to mine’s skin. I’s swear, I’s had more baths the last couple of days than I’s had mine’s whole life. 

 

Dezi sits atop the cat tree while Raena sits on the small perch

 

 

 

          She’s happy Raena. Don’t you ‘member her squealin’ like a banshee the other day? You know, when you slow blinked to her. You’re whole life she’s played the slow blink game and nuffin’. When you furinally slow blinked back mommy was beside herself with happiness. 

 

Raena post surgery sits on small perch in front of door looking backCheck out mine’s eyes. Aren’t they lookin’ pawsum?!!

 

 

 

Really? Mine’s slow blinkin’ makes mommy that happy? I’s didn’t do it befur cuz it hurt too bad. Ya’ know, always scratchin’. Scratch, scratch, scratchin’ mine’s eyes. Now that it doesn’t hurt anymore I’s just wanted mommy to know how much I’s luvs her. I’s never ‘magined she was gonna lose her marbles and get all mushy gushy fur days. 

 

          Purrlease Raena, you know how emotional mommy can be. Kittens, She can cry over a commercial. 

 

Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

 

Yeah that’s true sissy, I’s just didn’t know how ‘purrtant slow blinkin’ was to mommy. I’s always let her know how much I’s luvs her in other ways without her openin’ up the flood gates, so I’s just didn’t x’pect this. Guess it’s a good thing I’s like hugs and cuddles. How long do ya’ think this might last? 

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house and Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

          Who knows Raena. T’ween the guilt she feels fur not figgerin’ out what was wrong with your eyes sooner and the way you’ve been checkin’ everythin’ out like you’re seein’ it fur the very furst time, she could be gushin’ fur years.

 

Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s don’t blame mommy, she tried to help me and the minute she knew what was wrong and how to fix it, she did. I’s have so much to be fanky fankful fur. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure. And meowin’ of Blessings, tomorrow, we’ll be Giving Thanks fur the many Blessings we have.

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house while Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

 

          We will Raena. Thanksgiving here in the U.S. is a day celebrated cuz of the fortune our ancestors found when they came across this amazing and fertile new world, America. And while we’re certainly grateful fur all of that and the fact that we were born here and are citizens of this great nation, we actually celebrate by Giving Thanks fur those Blessings we receive each day, like our home, our family and furiends, our health and so much more. Me purrsonally is very Fankful, cuz had mommy not saved me that Fanksgivin’ so long ago, me surely would have died.

Oh sissy, I’s fanky fankful mommy saved you and me both. And fanky fanks to awnty Cindy we’ll be havin’ our very own turkey tom lurkey to celebrate. Fanky fank you all fur your furiendship, luvs and supurrt. Our lives are richer and full cuz of all of you. We purray God keeps His hands on you and supplies all your needs. Sissy and me are sendin’ slow blinks and purrs your way and mommy A sends hugs.

 

 

From our house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!!!
